Back to School: Shopping Made Simple


It is that time of year where parents are rushing to get all the last-minute items on their child’s school supplies list. One big box store is trying to consolidate your task in one location.

Back to school shopping is a priority at the Henderson Walmart and this year they’re making the whole process super simple.

Shopping for school supplies can be fun for some, “They enjoy and I enjoy it cause they’re getting ready to go back to school,” said Jessie Emblen.

But a pain for others.

“You know everyone’s life is so busy and hectic so they try to get in and get out,” said Co-Manager, William Thomas.

At participating Walmart’s, you walk in and get your supply list.

“We’ve got our school lists from all the local schools,” said Thomas. Then head back and find all the items in one section

“Makes it a little easier for mom mom or dad or whoever it may be grab the list, go straight to the aisle, find what they need and get it pretty quick,” said Thomas. This year they’re also carrying uniforms and just last week they added online grocery shopping.

“The biggest thing is it takes the time that they would spend here shopping and gives it back to their family,” said Thomas.

Own the school year like a hero… and shop like one too.
